We are a land and measured building survey practice established in 1971. We provide public and private clients with a professional service covering sites throughout the United Kingdom.
Based in Scarcroft, Leeds, we are in an excellent position to access the A1, M1, and M62 enabling us to reach sites in a competitive time.
At CSL SURVEYS, we believe in providing a customised service to meet clients needs, by giving advice on how specifications effect costs and giving honest programmes which can be relied upon.
Our qualified staff are skilled in producing accurate surveys typically of predevelopment sites, more details of which are given in this web site.
Example work is available on request.

Our policy has and will continue to be for staff to achieve a high level of academic competence and trainees attend day release courses at Leeds College of Building to reach a minimum standard of a BTEC National Certificate. Senior staff are qualified at HNC and HND level and are members of professional bodies.
The training we provide coupled with in house training enables us to maintain the highest professional standards for our clients, and staff are assessed on a regular basis to make sure they achieve the necessary standards.
We have a QA system involved in the assurance of all survey drawings. We guarantee the accuracy of survey equipment by having annual servicing and calibration of survey instruments, retaining calibration certificates for reference. The servicing is carried out by the instrument manufacturer's approved contractor. Periodic testing against known baseline distances is also carried out for hand held laser measuring devices.
The accuracy of captured data is interrogated by ensuring, whenever possible, that a closed loop traverse is carried out on site, with a minimum closure tolerance for large traverses being 1 in 20,000.
Before issue, CAD drawings are checked over by a senior member of the survey team.
